A simple riddle about how I feel right now.

One in name made up of two,

The first with honey, jam or glue,

second: paper, glass or ice,

less of them would be nice...

Of what do I speak?

A stab ... One in name made up of two,

spreadsheets

The first with honey, jam or glue,

these are spread - if so J. Siebeneichler excels

second: paper, glass or ice,

these are formed in sheets

less of them would be nice...

Save them ... it's noel time for Scroogey bosses making us Cratchity.

Do you feel

spread thin?

"honey, jam or glue"

Things you spread

"paper, glass or ice"

Things that are thin

"less of them would be nice..."

Less projects.

The first with honey, jam or glue,

Sounds like STICKY - a property shared by all of these things.

second: paper, glass or ice,

Maybe SHARP? You can get a paper cut, or cut yourself on broken glass, or maybe get stabbed with an icicle.

I'm not sure about how to put the two together though. You feel

sticky and sharp at work? :-P

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Can't decide whether sticky and sharp are good words for how I feel right now. ...maybe. But that's not the answer. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Dec 22 '17 at 13:29

You feel:

You feel flat-stick

One in names made up of two:

One hyphen in a names made up of two.

Jam, honey, glue:

Jam, glue and honey are all sticky

Glass, paper, ice:

Glass, paper and ice are all flat surfaces

Nice to have less:

Nice to have less clients

because:

because if you take the l t s away from clients and rearrange it would be nice, also because you are flat-stick Or maybe it's not that complicated and you just mean less work / tasks / projects

(not sure about this last line yet :))

  • $\begingroup$ will change the answer to include the last line, but might change it again later after I think a bit more $\endgroup$ – shara Dec 23 '17 at 2:00
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not feeling flatstick but +1 and welcome to the site. :) $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Dec 23 '17 at 6:12
